WORCESTER, G.R.G. - A Classification of the Principal Chinese Sea-going Junks. (South of the Yangtze).

Shanghai, Dept of Customs 1948. Smallish octavo, publisher's flexible green cloth; xiv,203pp, map & line drawings. A very good copy with small stamps of the Commissioner's Library. ¶ Worcester's fourth, last and most elusive contribution to the Customs series I think, pretty well ending his great project of recording the Chinese junk - he did publish memoirs and a guide to junk models in the science museum later. This is something of a spotter's guide, illustrating and describing 93 types gathered in 9 sections by locality.
